A clean workplace can not only make your business look more professional and appealing to customers, but it can also have a significant psychological impact on your staff.
Let’s look at a few ways a clean workplace can affect the mental health of your staff:
Some of the negative impacts of an unhygienic workplace include an increase in the number of workplace injuries and increased staff turnover. If your employees are constantly getting sick from breathing in dust and germs and injuring themselves on clutter and tools lying around, they’ll not only have to take more time off work but they’ll also start to lose interest in being a team player. Being able to breathe fresh air, use a clean bathroom and kitchen and easily navigate their workspace will boost staff morale immediately and encourage them to work harder and contribute to the success of your business.
Everything that we see, smell, touch, taste and hear has an impact on how we perceive the physical environment around us and how we absorb new pieces of information. Excess clutter, foul smells and filthy work surfaces can lead to a mental block due to overloading your staff with sensations that will distract them from their day to day tasks. A clean and tidy work environment, however, will clear the minds of your employees so that they don’t have to worry about anything other than the job at hand.
Our jobs are often one of the main causes of stress in our lives, and as a business owner, you’re responsible for the wellbeing of your staff. In order to lift some of the stress off the shoulders of your employees, creating a clean, tidy office space is a great place to start. An environment clear of clutter is proven to subconsciously lead to feelings of calm, so hiring a professional clean-up service can help free your staff of added stress so that they can feel relaxed at work.
